About this course

This diploma in advanced clinical practice and supervision will develop your supervisory skills as a clinician. You must be working within a mental health team, supporting children and young people with mental health problems. Our training will develop your clinical expertise and your supervisory practice and better equip you to pursue roles as a Senior Wellbeing Practitioner.

You need to have previously trained as an educational mental health practitioner (EMHP) or a children's wellbeing practitioner (CWP). You will build on your professional development, both as a supervisor and an advanced clinical practitioner.

The course will support your understanding of specific cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) interventions. It will also focus on the use of whole school approaches in schools. Meta supervision will support your reflection and learning from clinical supervision, and provides an opportunity to consider any challenges within the process.

Evidence based interventions are taught to support a wider range of clinical presentations, whilst adhering to the low intensity CBT protocol. You will have the opportunity to advance your clinical skills in practice and to gain feedback on your application of these skills.

We regularly review our courses to ensure and improve quality. This course may be revised as a result of this. Any revision will be balanced against the requirement that the student should receive the educational service expected. Find out why, when, and how we might make changes.

Our courses are regulated in England by the Office for Students (OfS).
